    Very, it’s called “natural rights”. Just because some unconstitutional laws have been passed does not abrogate rights we are born with. There used to be signs in business windows that stated “we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.” If a business makes it a habit to refuse service to potential customers, they would go out of business. This had the salutary effect of making businesses self-policing in their use of this right. Refuse to serve blacks? Lose customers and risk going out of business. Refuse to serve homosexuals? Lose customers and ditto. It was the government and stupid laws that protected businesses from going out of business for stupid actions. Now we have even stupider laws which force businesses to close.

    But it’s the general populace that put those corrupt, immoral, vicious, mean spirited politicians in government in the first place. It would appear that the rot starts at the tail.

    The best time to start to change all this will be coming up in a couple of weeks. VOTE! Get your friends and family to vote! Vote for the conservative most likely to win (generally someone with an R after their name). If you don’t like him/her for one reason or another, do it anyway! Nothing is more important than getting the liberal dems out of office throughout the country. Once the majorities are secured, we can work on getting more solid conservatives in office, but if the libs stay for 2 more years in control of anything, we will not be able to turn things around for a very long time, if ever.
    This is not a time to stand on “principles”. Staying home or using your one vote on a person who hasn’t the proverbial snowball’s chance of winning is foolish at this place in time. There are no perfect candidates, only perfect opportunities. Ours is this Nov 4th.

    LOL!

    Which is why parental involvement is more important than any external program. Engaged, involved and caring parents are the answer to most of society’s ills, and their influence carries far beyond their own families. Mothers and fathers working together to raise strong and loving children are stronger than any other force in our society.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons), are also against SSM and abortion. Our doctrine has not changed either. Don’t feel so alone. There are many Christians who believe the way you do.

    And in the meantime, we have a Marine in a stinking Mexican jail for going on 5 months. And no word from the Resident as to when he’ll try to get him out.

    Jealous a bit? Got a problem with people who earn a living? Hate to see others enjoying the fruits of their labors? There’s a name for underachievers like yourself. Progressive water-carrier. Always at the bottom, looking up, and hating it.

    So did I. With Dish now, but still not satisfied. I keep it for a couple of channels and The Blaze.

    My local Aldi grocery store uses locking carts, but they take quarters to unlock, which you get back when you re-attach your cart to the line.

    Probably why she got fired from her day job!

    I was working at a veterinarian’s office years ago. I had a miscarriage, and shortly after that, a client asked me when the baby was due. I simply said, “I lost it”, and he was profusely apologetic. I went on with my life, my boss didn’t say anything to the client, and we didn’t make anything more of the incident. People, especially young children, can be (and often are) thoughtless in their comments to others. We don’t always think before we speak, and that’s OK. People make mistakes, say things without malice, and act like flawed human beings. It’s not a crime, just life. We have been trained to be super-sensitive to the slightest indication of disrespect, all out of proportion to the action and intent. Being loving and forgiving works better.

    This doesn’t sound like a new law, just a clarification of what the original law, the 5th Amendment to the Constitution, actually means. The various enforcement agencies mentioned have been increasingly lawless in their seizures of property from citizens who haven’t even been charged with a crime, much less arrested and/or prosecuted. This is a clear violation of the original intent of the 5th, as it’s about the same thing the British soldiers were doing here before the Revolutionary War. I support Senator Paul in this.

    The fact that there is a huge “tax” on imported sugar had something to do with the use of HFCS. No other country pays as much as we do for imported cane sugar. The corn growers wanted it that way, and they paid millions to the government agencies in the form of lobbying in order to get the imports down.

    I live in Michigan. I buy a herd share every year so I can get the fresh milk, eggs, meats and other produce that help keep my family healthy. I support our local growers, dairies, ranches and orchardists. The government is interfering with my choice to feed my family healthy, unprocessed foodstuffs from people that I know and trust. I have written to the various agencies that are involved in this systemic overreach of governmental power, and have received the general platitudes of “Thank you for your interest in this topic.” It’s hugely frustrating.

    I don’t care if big corporations make food-like stuff, or if big seed companies make frankenseeds. Not everyone, or even most, can get real food and grow naturally produced plants for food, especially those in cities. But I get real mad when the government and the big food and seed companies tell me I can’t grow my own food, save my own rainwater, or buy from my provider of choice for food that I prefer. It’s all about control. Follow the money, every time.

    As long as Harry Reid doesn’t join any anti-Mormon groups, pays his tithing, and doesn’t try change the doctrine or to get people to leave the Church, he’s not in any danger of excommunication. Getting a recommend to attend the temple is another matter. He has to be honest in his dealings with his fellowmen, but his answer to that question is between him and his bishop, and the Lord. The LDS Church is careful to not tell its members how to believe politically. We are “taught correct principles”, and then expected to govern ourselves according to those principles, the greatest of which is love for one another, and for our Savior.
    I personally believe that Harry Reid’s mind is not what it used to be. Some of the things he’s saying sound like they’re coming from an addled mind. Perhaps dementia is setting in.

    “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” — Barack Obama, October 30, 2008. Truth which no one believed at the time. This is the most important truth he has spoken, mainly because few people understood it at the time. I did, and my blood ran cold. I knew what we were in for, but no one was listening.

    “The Constitution provides that an amendment may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures.” According to the Federal Register, anyway. 2 ways to amend the Constitution. Stop slamming the A-Maizin’ Blue!

    Well, after slogging through HumphreyHP book, I think there’s a simple answer. The Constitution provides for the federal government to determine immigration laws. That’s been done. We have many laws on the books about who can come here and how. It’s the Executive Branch’s mandate to enforce the law, all the law. The Executive Branch has patently decided not to do that. Only the laws they like get enforced; they don’t like the immigration laws, so they don’t get enforced. Clear so far?
    Each state has the right to protect its citizens from attack, danger and harm; that’s why we have National Guard units in every state. Send the majority of each state’s NG to the border, catch the illegals as they come onto US soil, and take them directly to ICE. If any of them are let go, catch them again and take them back to ICE. Either the ICE will do its job and deport, or the illegals will get tired of getting picked up every few days and go home. There is no excuse for illegals to be here, other than the Executive Branch refusing to do its job.
